  1. Thank you for your dating article in boundless. You sound like someone I’d enjoy being friends with and having great discussions with. I live in NC though. May God bless you in your walk with Him!

  2. Hi.
    Years ago I copied this quote of Lewis’s,
    “It is, of course, quite true that God will not love you any the less, or have less use for you, if you happen to have been born with a very second-rate brain. He has room for people with very little sense, but He wants every one to use what sense they have. The proper motto is not “Be good, sweet maid, and let who can be clever,” but “Be good, sweet maid, and don’t forget that this involves being as clever as you can.” God is no fonder of intellectual slackers than of any other slackers. If you are thinking of becoming a Christian, I warn you you are embarking on something which is going to take the whole of you, brains and all.”
    It comes to my mind quite often. I’d forgotten where it was from. I googled it and came upon your comments on it. I’ve just re-read ‘The Last Battle’ and came upon Lewis’s same thoughts expressed in different context. In chapter 8, Eustace says to Puzzle, “If you’d spent less time saying you weren’t clever and more time trying to be as
    clever as you could——”
    I thought you might enjoy.

    1. Thanks for sharing! Lewis has a way of being accessible and challenging at the same time. It’s been a long time since I read the Narnia books. I feel like I’m due for a re-read. One of these days! Lewis is so prolific, there are still several of his non-fiction books I’ve yet to read.
